Instructions for Life
I Thessalonians 5:12-28
The Lord has given us instructions on how we are to live and experience the abundant life He desires for us.
1. Respect those who are over you in the Lord.
Respect - (â€˜knowâ€™) = Acknowledge them as servants of Christ and treat with respect & appreciation.
2. Live in peace with each other; warn the idle; encourage the timid; help the weak; be PATIENT with everyone!
3-a. Be joyful always, pray continually, give thanks in all circumstances.
3-b. do not put out the Spiritâ€™s fire, do not treat prophecies with contempt. Test everything; avoid every kind of evil.
4. The Lord is sanctifying us through and through â€“ spirit, soul and body â€“ transforming us to be blameless until the coming of our Lord Jesus!
